|A new species of the cicada genus Cicadatra Kolenati, 1857 (Hemiptera, Cicadidae) from Pakistan with a key to the known species of Pakistani Cicadatra. - Ahmed, Zubair|
This article is from ZooKeys.AbstractAbstractA new species of cicada, Cicadatra ziaraticasp. n., is described from Pakistan. Male genitalia, timbal and opercula are described and illustrated as important diagnostic characters. Biological notes are also provided. A key to the known Cicadatra of Pakistan is provided.
|Zinc-deficiency acrodermatitis in a patient with chronic alcoholism and gastric bypass: a case report. (Volume 4) - Shahsavari, Dariush|
This article is from Journal of Community Hospital Internal Medicine Perspectives, volume 4.AbstractAcquired adult-onset zinc deficiency is occasionally reported in patients with malnutrition states, such as alcoholism, or malabsorptive states, such as post-bariatric surgery. The defining symptoms of hypozincemia include a classic triad of necrolytic dermatitis, diffuse alopecia, and diarrhea. We report a case of zinc deficiency in a 39-year-old man with history of gastric bypass surgery and alc...

|Effectiveness of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention With Drug-Eluting Stents Compared With Bypass Surgery in Diabetics With Multivessel Coronary Disease: Comprehensive Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Randomized Clinical Data. (Volume 2) - Hakeem, Abdul|
This article is from Journal of the American Heart Association: Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease, volume 2.AbstractBackground: Controversy persists regarding the optimal revascularization strategy for diabetic patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MVD). Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) has been compared with percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) using drug‐eluting stents (DES) in recent randomized controlled trials (RCTs)...
|Molecular genetic studies and delineation of the oculocutaneous albinism phenotype in the Pakistani population. (Volume 7) - Jaworek, Thomas J|
This article is from Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases, volume 7.AbstractBackground: Oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) is caused by a group of genetically heterogeneous inherited defects that result in the loss of pigmentation in the eyes, skin and hair. Mutations in the TYR, OCA2, TYRP1 and SLC45A2 genes have been shown to cause isolated OCA. No comprehensive analysis has been conducted to study the spectrum of OCA alleles prevailing in Pakistani albino populations...
|Double homozygous waltzer and Ames waltzer mice provide no evidence of retinal degeneration. (Volume 14) - Ahmed, Zubair M.|
This article is from Molecular Vision, volume 14.AbstractPurpose: To determine whether cadherin 23 and protocadherin 15 can substitute for one another in the maintenance of the retina and other tissues in the mouse. Does homozygosity for both v and av mutant alleles (i.e., a double homozygous mouse) cause retinal degeneration or an obvious retinal histopathology? Methods: We generated mice homozygous for both Cdh23v-6J and Pcdh15av-Jfb alleles...
|Variable expressivity of FGF3 mutations associated with deafness and LAMM syndrome. (Volume 12) - Riazuddin, Saima|
This article is from BMC Medical Genetics, volume 12.AbstractBackground: Recessive mutations of fibroblast growth factor 3 (FGF3) can cause LAMM syndrome (OMIM 610706), characterized by fully penetrant complete labyrinthine aplasia, microtia and microdontia. Methods: We performed a prospective molecular genetic and clinical study of families segregating hearing loss linked to FGF3 mutations. Ten affected individuals from three large Pakistani families segregating FGF3 mutations were imaged with ...
|Characterization of a new full length TMPRSS3 isoform and identification of mutant alleles responsible for nonsyndromic recessive deafness in Newfoundland and Pakistan. (Volume 5) - Ahmed, Zubair M|
This article is from BMC Medical Genetics, volume 5.AbstractBackground: Mutant alleles of TMPRSS3 are associated with nonsyndromic recessive deafness (DFNB8/B10). TMPRSS3 encodes a predicted secreted serine protease, although the deduced amino acid sequence has no signal peptide. In this study, we searched for mutant alleles of TMPRSS3 in families from Pakistan and Newfoundland with recessive deafness co-segregating with DFNB8/B10 linked haplotypes and also more thoroughly characterized the geno...
